Nikola Badger electric pickup preorder to start June 29, 2020

Nikola Corporation is excited to announce the product launch of the Nikola Badger electric pickup truck with an estimated range of 600 miles. Nikola is mostly known for its fuel-cell-powered semi-trucks, but back in February, it shared the first details about the upcoming Badger pickup truck. The vehicle will join the already crowded world of electric trucks headed toward the market. But it has a twist.

The roof was also raised by five inches and enforced with steel support ribbing so that it exceeds US Federal Safety Standards and Crush Resistance Laws while providing optim...

1964 Porsche Carrera GTS can be yours for a cool $2.45 Million

An extremely rare 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS is now up for auction at the Gooding & Company. The Gooding & Company is an automotive auction house based in Santa Monica, California – known for setting world-record prices for classic cars such as this one.  When the 904 Carrera GTS debuted in 1964, it represented Porsche’s first foray into fiberglass bodywork, but it was also the German automaker’s last hurrah for its four-cam, four-cylinder engine.

Working in tandem with the 904’s lightweight, aerodynamic body, that engine propelled the car to speeds that far exceeded what the marque’s previous sports and racing c...
